St Patrick’s Day Charity Golf

PFGS often play Pattaya Country Club and a few months ago a tragic event occurred.
This is the press story, although they did get it wrong as the Caddies where in fact from Pattaya Country Club and not Siam Country Club.
“Two Caddies who were on their way home after a day a work, were killed as their motorbike was rear-ended by an 18-wheel truck which failed to stop at the scene of the crash.
Police and rescue services made their way to the crash site on the Pattaya-bound carriageway of Highway 36, in front of the Bira International Racing Circuit, just after 2pm on Thursday November 19th.
Khun Sawiga aged 18 and Khun Jintana aged 19 suffered severe life-ending trauma which included traumatic amputation of limbs after the truck reportedly drove over the pair and then drove-off, according to witnesses.
The pair worked at the Siam Country Club Golf Course, according to their parents who attended the scene to identify the bodies of their children. Policare searching for the truck and its driver at this time.”
To date the driver has still not been found therefore no financial compensation. Both Caddies had children which are of course now motherless and it falls to the families to raise these.
As a society we decided that we needed to give something back to local Golf, as we had already planned a St. Patrick’s Day PFGS event then it was felt that this was no better time than now to hold a charity day and all profits raised to be given to the respective Caddies families to help them raise the children.
